arosebyanyothername :  This!

With the weather cooling down, I hear him snoring less. But honestly, when he’s having one of those nights, separate bedrooms are our only salvation. Even then, sometimes I can hear him snoring from the other room, with each of the doors closed, and a fan on in his room…. but it’s faint enough I can usually force myself to sleep.

I don’t understand how they don’t wake themselves up. Really, honestly, how do they sleep through it? It’s soooooo loud.

I very much agree with the sleep apnea and getting a c-pap machine. It is not necessarily comfortable for the person who has to get used to wearing it, but it will improve HIS sleep as well as yours. Constant, loud snoring is common, but not a good thing at all. It is bad for his health (beyond you planning his death and all).

I feel you! Fiance has a deviated septum and snores horrifically a lot of nights. Since his problem isn’t sleep apnea (he’s had a sleep study, he’s fine), the breathe right strips help some. Also, if it gets really bad, if I roll over violently enough, it’ll wake him enough to reposition himself and he’ll usually stop. Or nudging him a few times will sometimes do the trick. Occasionally, if he’s really knocked out, I’ll just roll him over myself.

dodobee :  My Fi snores on occasion. I am a deep sleeper so he might do it more than I realize. I find that he snores mostly when he is really tired. So I am actually able to kick him a little and that usually stops the snoring for a bit till I can get to sleep.

I should also mention when I told DH’s doctor that I’d just been rolling him on his side to make him stop snoring, he stopped because not as much air gets through- it didn’t actually fix anything and could have made issues worse.

Take me seriously when I say CPAP saved my marriage.

My husband did not even know he wasn’t getting a good night’s sleep until literally the first night he slept with his CPAP. The next morning he bounced out of bed before the alarm and was a new man. Five years later, he never, ever sleeps without it, and I’m not five years into my jail sentence for his murder. Schedule him a visit with a sleep specialist ASAP.

What has worked for us is if I go to bed first. Then I’m sleeping when he comes to bed and I’m not bothered.

dodobee :  Fiance was just put on a CPAP maching on Friday. BEST sleep either of us have had in the almost 10 years we have slept together, even on his back. 

Definitely check the symptoms of sleep apnea and see if he fits and take him to the doc to be tested.

Meds can definitely make them snore more. My ex would have bad allergy attacks and take Benadryl and I swear his snoring shook the house. My bf snores bad when he pushes himself too hard during the day after work or stays up too late into the day and when he takes anything that makes him sleep.

Ear plugs were my best friends.
